A Taxing Problem, not a spending problem

I know Faux's Republican bosses are telling them to whine about how our deficit/debt is a "spending problem, not a taxing problem", but if 45% of American households don't have any federal income tax liability, it what sense can that be a "spending problem, not a taxing problem"?

Also, too, it turns out that the average federal income tax rate for "taxed enough already" American households is a staggering 9.3%. Taxed enough already indeed.

The next teabag person who wants to complain about the deficit/debt being a "spending problem, not a taxing problem" and wants to whine out about being "taxed enough already" should be compelled to provide the rest of us a copy of their federal tax return. Or else shut up.
